I will try my best to post move requests on a less frequent basis, but the trouble is that I never know exactly when I'll have something to upload.

You're obviously an avid uploader and we appreciate that. As I've said before we try to be as efficient as possible to have a very lean staff. With that in mind I would like to suggest creating three collections for you:
1. a subcollection of classic_tv
2. a subcollection of classic_tv_commercials
3. a subcollection of movie_trailers

That will allow you to upload directly to those collections without any Archive admin assistance. And your items will appear in the parent collections in search and "This just in", "Top downloads, etc.

I feel this would help you better manage your uploads at your discretion. And you would have a collection page that you could modify the description, etc. to your liking.

please contact us at info@archive.org

I will try my best to "space out" my requests.

Your Highness,
Please start your own collections. It will save both you and the admins time. I have a collection and after I got the hang of it things worked well.
And no more "Please Move" postings are needed.

If I had my own collection, would I be able to move over my older items?

Look, I am an uneducated child-like man, I have no idea how to go around making a new section.

EDIT: OK, I sent to the email, what do I do next? Does it matter that my current email address is not the same one used by this account? What do I do next?

Your Highness,
I'm so old I watched Huckleberry Hound on its first run, but I can somewhat handle a collection. You should easily surpass my efforts.
Once I got permissions to a collection the hardest part for me was remembering to choose to post it in my own collection. That is just a click box in the Uploader but I kept forgetting. It is also a good idea to decide the “Keywords” you will use on each upload beforehand.
The process is always fixable, so any mistakes can be repaired by editing the item later. You will be fine and can always remove and replace as you become more familiar with the process.

I think your own collection would be a marvelous idea. You deserve it. With all your knowledge of classic TV programming, this would be ideal. Think about it.
